So you’re new to horse race betting? I have two main things to tell you. One, do not be overconfident and think that you can just jump into the water without equipping yourself. No matter that you think you have the talent to win big. You have to know the basics of betting. Two, do not despair that you might not learn all that there is to learn about horse race betting. There are many resources that can help you, and this blog is one of them. Here are some of the most useful betting tips that you can use on a regular basis.
Pick out a system and then set your stakes low enough.
There are many betting systems out there. You may want to choose a tried and tested one or you may want to come up with your own. If you are just beginning, though, I suggest reading up on the various existing systems and adapt one for your own first.
Then, remember not to make your stakes too high. In every betting system, no matter how good it is, there will be low patches. You have to make sure that you are not losing too much during these low patches, so set your stakes to a reasonable level.
Don’t bet in every race.
This is tempting, oh so tempting. It is especially true if you have a large enough bankroll. More so, if you are currently on a high roll, then you might want to bet on every single race. Nope. Don’t do it. Choose your races wisely and only pick those which you are really confident about.
